Channel Nine News: The facts

Officially known as 'Nine News', Channel Nine News programme offers daily bulletins at regular intervals throughout the day in Australia. The programmes are usually produced by network owned and operated by stations in four major Australian cities in localised editions. As well as standard television news bulletins, the station also offers several current affairs programmes, offering a wider general perspective on Australian news.

Concept

The cornerstone of Nine News is its national bulletins, which air daily at 5:00 am, 11:00 am and 4:30 pm throughout the week. There is also a bulletin which airs at 5:00 pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
However, this is not shown in Sydney or Brisbane on Sundays during the rugby league season. Online bulletins are also available to be viewed from all over Australia and the channel also produces Ninemsn Newsroom, which is a News-9 online bulletin streamed at half past noon on weekdays. Introduced in 2009, these bulletins are usually presented by Wendy Kingston and Alicia Gorey, which can be viewed or downloaded at Ninemsn.com.au.

Regional overview

The major cities in Australia each have their own localised bulletin with Sydney, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Darwin and Melbourne's versions being produced by Channel Nine itself. Affiliates produce versions for Perth and Adelaide. Peter Overton is the usual anchor presenter for the Sydney editions of the show. He is one of the successors to Brian Henderson, whose tenure on the show had run for 38 years until he retired in 2002. Peter Hitchener is Melbourne's main-week night presenter, the successor to the late Brian Naylor, who presented the show from 1978 until 1998. Brisbane's viewers' show is hosted on weekdays by Andrew Lofthouse and Melissa Downes and the programme also features former Australian test cricketer Ian Healy, who presents the sports section.
Rob Readings presents the show transmitted to the Gold Coast region of Queensland.

Other points

Ninemsn (not Ninemesn, as it is sometimes incorrectly typed) claims to be Australia's largest online content publisher, with around 9.7 million people visiting the site each month, according to the company's own figures. The online service is a joint venture between Nine Entertainment Co. and computer technology giant, Microsoft. This network of online content includes more than 50 news, entertainment, fashion and sport websites, including the Ninemsn portal itself, as as well as sites like Wide World of Sports, Travel and Health & Wellbeing, which come under its banner.
